On to the next Challenge

It has been a spring and summer full of races for me.   I ran seven 5Ks, a 4 miler, a 5 miler, and two 10Ks as part of two different race series.  I also ran a 5 mile and 10 mile race.  My season is winding down with one more 5K  next month to finish the Seacoast Race Series (and get another jacket for completing it).

Now the real work begins as I train for the Seacoast Half Marathon!  I started gearing up my distance with a 6.5 mile run this weekend.  It felt great.  The weather was cool (59 degrees) and we ran along the beach for a large part of the run.  However there was a strong headwind and afterwards I was beat.  I spent most of the rest of the day on the couch!

 

Each time I run a half marathon I say, “My preparation should have included more weight training”,  and so I am putting it down in writing and setting a goal to get my sorry self to the gym a minimum of two times a week from now until the race in early November (and hopefully beyond).

No excuses.  I am going to start today with a workout at lunchtime.
